The first round of Transit-Oriented Development workshops held at Seneca One Tower earlier this year were a huge success and brought about great interest in promoting regional growth and development around Metro Rail.

On June 28th, 2017 the second round of Transit-Oriented Development workshops were held at Hayes Hall at the University at Buffalo South Campus. The purpose of the meeting was to share which existing and future Metro Rail station areas are viewed as having the best Transit-Oriented Development potential and participate in an engaging planning exercise to ready these station areas for Transit-Oriented Development.
